Wheat Ridge to choose next book club pick

Four books to choose from for community read

Posted

Wheat Ridge residents are being asked to help select the Wheat Ridge Reads book for 2019. To participate in the two-question poll visit the Wheat Ridge Cultural Events page on Facebook MeetTheArtistWheatRidge or take the survey online. Wheat Ridge Reads will close voting on the 2019 book selection at the end of September 2019 and the 2019 selection announced in October.

Wheat Ridge Reads is an annual citywide book club designed to promote literacy and a shared reading experience throughout the community. Local residents are encouraged to review the titles below and vote for their favorite as a collective reading experience. The author of the selected title will visit the community in January 2020 to discuss the book with readers in locations throughout the City.

The four books under consideration are:

Campsite Six by Jan Fallon

Rosary without Beads by Diana Holguin-Balogh

Go Ask Fannie by Elisabeth Hyde  

Madam Velvet’s Cabaret of Oddities by Nancy Stohlman

The books were selected for their variety, their authors’ Colorado base, and, in the case of three books, their recent recognition as Colorado Book Award finalists.

Wheat Ridge Reads is sponsored by the Wheat Ridge Cultural Commission in partnership with the Wheat Ridge Library and Wheat Ridge High School.
